Exalted Abyss - Superstring Dimension is a new Abyss mode for Lv80+ Captains. This new Abyss features new stages and enemies, more ranks, new Trophy system and more rewards. This guide will take a look at all the new stuff and provide some gameplay footage.
Time Limit: 5 minutes. No bleed mechanic.
Non-boss stages (Fringe, Intensive, Singular): 6000 points each on clear.
Boss stage (Perilous): Depends on your clear time. The faster you clear, the higher your score.
NEW STAGE MECHANICS
Superstring Dimension is packed with mechanics that you normally find in story/event/Honkai Lab, such as charging traumas on enemies/objects, evade fire explosion to gain bonus SP and a bunch of exploding HOLA.
Personally, mob stages feel easier and more fun due to the new gimmicky mechanics. There's no massive HP increase like Masters Arena to Exalted Arena. That still depends on Disturbance.
List of known weather so far, based on beta and live server.
Note that Singular stages have more weathers, such as Ranged DMG and Quantum.
Clearing Abyss missions give you Coins, Advanced Skill Material, Gold Pins, Superstring Option Box (choose Willpowerx10 or Torusx3) and 100 crystal (already accounted for in the table above)
While Agony and Redlotus emblem remain the same, Nirvana players will receive a brand new Nirvana Lord emblem.
Myriad is no longer a bracket. Instead, it's a leaderboard for Top100 players server-wide. Every round, Myriad players receive extra crystal and emblem (shown in table above.) Additionally, Myriad emblem will be improved, estimated arrival in 4.3.
Here's the list of Trophy gain/loss at the end of every round. Note that the values are slightly different for rooms with less than 20 players.
MORE RETENTION AND PROMOTION OPPORTUNITY
A MORE FORGIVING NIRVANA PROMOTION
In Masters, only top 40 RedLotus players server-wide can promote to Myriad. In Exalted, as long as you are in Top3 RL group, you will reach Nirvana!
The trade-off is the crystal difference between Nirvana and RedLotus is very little, unless you manage to be Top100 players (...which might require top valks. The loophole!)
My 4.2 Beta EX Abyss Playlist:
HoT vs Nihilus Husk (Lightning UP)
Blood Rose vs Heimdall (Fire UP)
In conclusion, EX Abyss is packed with new features and rewards captains with more crystal and currency. That's it for this overview. Experience the new Abyss, captains!
